If you enjoyed the feature film Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa, this tale featuring the King of Atlantis himself will keep you reading!

Arthur Curry is a man of two worlds. Six years ago he was a surface dweller, raised as the son of a lighthouse keeper. Then his destiny was revealed, and young Arthur Curry claimed his birthright: the throne of Atlantis.

But his reign was brief. When the surface world was threatened, he joined the team of heroes called the Justice League, leaving the rule of his kingdom behind.

But even underwater, the past will not stay buried. A sinister force is pushing Aquaman's two worlds to war. As the oceans rise to drown his new home, can Aquaman broker peace with the people he left behind? If he does not reclaim his throne, the throne may well claim his life...

Aquaman: War for the Throne is an epic tale of conflict and conquest from the creative team of Geoff Johns (Doomsday Clock), Paul Pelletier (Justice League) and Ivan Reis (Superman)! Collects Aquaman #0, #14-16 and Justice League #15-17 from the New 52 series.
